Subluxation and Chiropractic Care
How do you define health?
Many people think they are healthy because they have no pain. However, lack of pain doesn’t mean you are healthy. You can have undetected disease like cancer or diabetes but have no pain.
According to WHO “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
Our body is controlled by the nervous system. The brain, spinal cord and nerves. Our brain and spinal cord are well protected by the skull and spine. Our nervous system sends signals from the brain to the cells throughout the body and relays information back to the brain. Just like how a traffic jam in the middle of the highway can cause delays, when there’s an interference in our nervous system our body cannot function at its maximum potential.
Subluxations are biomechanical lesion that involves a joint (e.g. spine) that is not moving appropriately. When subluxation exists in the spine, abnormal spinal information is sent to the brain and central nervous system. This will result in abnormal processing and integration by the brain and central nervous system and cause poor control of the spine and body. Subluxation interferes with our body's ability to self-regulate, self-organize, adapt, repair and heal.
Why might we become "subluxated" and have abnormal movement pattern? Stress is one of the major components: Emotional stress, Chemical stress and Physical stress (the 3 T’s- Thought, Toxin, Trauma).
So, how can we achieve better health and well-being? ↓ 3 T’s and ↓ Subluxations
Health and well-being can be achieved by reducing the 3 T’s (thought, trauma, toxin) and subluxations. This allows you to achieve maximum healing potential with proper function of the nervous system.
Subluxation is the symptom when our body is being overloaded and changes the input to the brain. Chiropractors identify subluxations and correct them by delivering adjustments using variety of techniques. Chiropractic adjustment will improve the accuracy of the communication between the brain and the body and the environment.
Please take care of your body and include chiropractic care to live at your maximum potential.
